Pork Tenderloin with Honey Butter

Serves 4

4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed, thin end folded up and tied
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup water

1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a Dutch oven or ovenproof skillet, heat the butter and honey over medium-low heat, stirring to melt butter. Season the pork with salt and pepper and place in pan. Cook until lightly browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat if honey begins to burn.

2. Transfer to oven, and roast until pork is cooked to 145°, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer pork to a plate.

3. Add water to pan, and place on stove over medium heat, cook stirring with a wooden spoon to scrape up all the browned bits. Add any accumulated pork juices from the plate, and simmer until sauce is reduced to about 1/2 cup. Slice pork on the diagonal, and serve drizzled with the sauce
